Over at Entrepreneur, the up-and-coming Millennial generation is the subject of an infographic depicting the rise of entrepreneurship among young workers.
Based upon research compiled by Rasmussen College, the graphic shows that “freedom” is the No. 1 factor driving Millennials to quit their day jobs and pursue entrepreneurial endeavors. Among respondents, 71 percent indicated that they would prefer working for themselves to working for others at a regular job, and 60 percent said they will likely do so within two years.
The graphic also shows the explosion of popular collaboration tools like Skype and Dropbox, as well as the increase in entrepreneurial programs offered online and at colleges.
